April is National Volunteer Month, and for many nonprofits, this serves as a reminder to reach out and encourage people to volunteer, while also showing appreciation and working to inspire local communities.
Donor loyalty for nonprofits is critical, as it costs much more to attain new donors than to keep those you already have.
April is National Volunteer Month, and to celebrate, we wanted to help you turn your valuable volunteers into donors!
There are so many ways to reach out to and engage with your nonprofit supporters.
But how do you decide which channels to use for outreach and how often to use them? Ultimately, it depends on the particular and current objectives of your organization, however; we can offer some general guidelines.
On #GivingTuesday, you can make your donations go further by crafting a compelling story that engages your supporters, old and new, and motivates them to give.
Engaging nonprofit supporters throughout the year might seem like a lot of interaction, but doing so strategically and meaningfully will actually bring your supporters closer to you and your mission!
Storytelling is not just for children – it’s an important part of your nonprofit. Who you are, where you came from, and the causes you serve are all important parts of your journey – and important to your supporters!
A well-crafted story can be the deciding factor between whether that supporter donates or not: more than half (56%) of nonprofit supporters on the social web say reading a compelling story motivates them to take action and 68% are motivated to donate based on that story!
